Lennox And Green Day Honoured For Songwriting Skills

The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers will honour ANNIE LENNOX and GREEN DAY at the 23rd annual Pop Awards in Beverly Hills, California, on 22 May (06). Lennox will receive the Founders Award and Green Day will be honoured with the ASCAP Creative Voice Award. The Founder Award honours pioneering songwriters who have made exceptional contributions to music, inspiring and influencing other musicians. Past recipients include NEIL YOUNG, PAUL MCCARTNEY and TOM WAITS. Green Day's Creative Voice Award is given to artists whose career achievements are matched by their contributions to their community. President MARILYN BERGMAN says, "Annie Lennox is one of the finest musical voices of our time - unlike any other, uncompromising and unpredictable. "Both as singers and songwriters, Green Day are one of the most musically ambitious, innovative groups, as relevant today as when they emerged on the scene as new artists."
